Entropy energy cards have a sensor that measure the energy in the body. Just press your thumb against the sensor for ten seconds. If the sensor turns black, you need an Entropy. If it turns blue, you're energized. Other colors indicate varying degrees of energy. Energy cards are now shipped with every order of Entropy.

Not only did Tim enjoy his Entropy, our CEO, Eduardo Pinheiro, did too. Here's a picture of Eduardo and Tim at the party.

Panax Ginseng: The Ancient Chinese Secret?
Written by Entropy Staff   
Sunday, 28 November 2010 00:00

When it comes to medicine, there are three schools of thought. Some of us swear by Western medicines, insisting that pharmaceutical companies hold the answers to all of our ailments and illnesses. Others refute the methods of the West and turn to Eastern medicine for their health care needs. Then there are those of us who appreciate the best that both worlds have to offer, acknowledging that East and West can sometimes meet in perfect balance.

One of the most popular health supplements brought to us by Eastern medicine is Panax Ginseng. Records of this miracle root date back as early as 33 BC. The plant has been used for thousands of years as a “cure all” in Eastern medicine. In fact, the word “panax” translates to “cure all” in Greek, and it is evident that the root has been used to treat a variety of human ailments throughout history [1].

What, exactly, can Panax Ginseng do? Panax Ginseng has been used to treat everything from memory loss to diabetes. Millions swear by its ability to improve brain function and alleviate memory loss. The question is, does Panax Ginseng really work, and what can it do for you?

Where Did I Put My Keys?

Memory loss... We all go through it at some point in our lives. It starts out simple enough. One day we can recite everything we've done for the past ten years without batting an eye. The next day we have no idea what we ate for breakfast the previous morning. Then, at some point, we find ourselves desperately searching for our car keys for twenty minutes, only to find that they were in our hand the entire time. Doesn't sound familiar? Trust me, some day it will.

But what if we could prevent memory loss? Better yet, what if we could improve memory after the signs of memory loss had already become apparent? If the research is any indication, it's not a case of what-if. It's a case of knowing where to turn.

The Key to Memory

Studies have shown that Panax Ginseng can indeed help with memory loss, especially when combined with Ginkgo Biloba. A double blind study was performed in 2000 in the UK. Two-hundred and fifty-six healthy, middle-aged volunteers underwent a controlled placebo study. Those not in the placebo group were given a ginkgo biloba/ginseng combination.

The results of the study were promising. The combination of ginseng and ginkgo biloba was found to produce an improvement of about 7.5 percent in a variety of memory aspects, including long-term memory, when taking the supplement [2].

Panax Ginseng has also been proven to help alleviate the memory loss associated with Alzheimer's Disease. In a twelve-week clinical study of Panax Ginseng, Alzheimer's patients were randomly assigned to two groups. The first group was treated with a Panax Ginseng powder. The second group was given a placebo.

Those who were treated with the Panax Ginseng began showing improvements in their memory function. Those in the control group did not. When the Alzheimer's patients taking the Panax Ginseng discontinued the use, memory once again began to decline [3].

Hold on to Your Memories

Memory may not have to be an inevitable part of life. While Western medicines may currently be limited in their ability to prevent and treat memory loss, we just might have a cure from the East. If research is any indication, Panax Ginseng may very well be the answer we've been looking for to improve long-term memory.

Entropy contain 100mg of Panax Ginseng. Buy Entropy Now.

How Entropy Is Made
Written by Entropy Staff   
Monday, 08 November 2010 00:00

Here's a short video of our production line showing how Entropy comes alive.

It all starts with mixing of the ingredients (which is not shown in the video). The mix goes through pipes to a pipeline of machines as shown in the video above. Along the way it is carbonated. The cans are then loaded, inspected, washed and finally filled with the liquid in a high-speed line.

Once the can is filled and sealed, it goes through tunnel pasteurization where the can and its contents are heated, to kill any form of living organism. The cans are then cooled and sent to the packaging area where they are put into our 12-packs, which then a put onto trays and shrink wrapped and palletized for shipping (not shown).

We hope you enjoy watching this process.

Note: the machines are really loud and noisy, so we turned the sound off to spare your ears.

Does Red Wine Flow from the Fountain of Youth?
Written by Entropy Staff   
Sunday, 10 October 2010 20:02

If you are looking for the fountain of youth, it may be as close as the nearest wine rack. Resveratrol, a polyphenol found mainly in grapes and red wine, has been gaining widespread attention for its anti-aging and cardiovascular benefits. What's all the buzz about, and what can resveratrol do for you?

The benefits of resveratrol are piquing quite a bit of interest from health-conscious consumers, and with good reason. This particular polyphenol seems to boast a broad range of health benefits, and has many people hopeful that it may be the true “miracle supplement” that we have all been waiting for.

Research has indicated that resveratrol possesses beneficial cardiovascular properties as well as anti-aging and anti-cancer health benefits. There are also reports that resveratrol can help blood sugar levels, weight loss, arthritis and other common ailments. The question is, does resveratrol really do everything you hope it can?

To understand whether or not resveratrol is actually the new “wonder drug” you need to understand exactly what resveratrol is, how it works, and what it can do for you.

Is Resveratrol Really a Fountain of Youth?

If you're looking for a pill that will take ten years off your age and make you live forever, resveratrol may disappoint you. What it can do, however, is protect your cardiovascular system from age-related damage and illness.

While it is not a key to immortality, research has shown that resveratrol can indeed affect your longevity genes. If you've been battling cholesterol, you may now have extra ammunition to fight the war. Resveratrol may help bring your cholesterol down by affecting longevity genes like Sirt1, Sirt3, Sirt4, Foxo1 and Foxo3a.

While resveratrol may not be a true fountain of youth, per se, it does have the ability to alleviate quite a few age-related health concerns [1].

Understanding the “French Paradox”

Now that you know why everyone is so interested in the benefits of resveratrol, you're probably wondering what started it all. Exactly how did resveratrol get on the radar and when did its benefits become apparent?

Have you ever wondered how those few lucky people can eat whatever they want, whenever they want and not suffer for it? Do you think it's unfair that your neighbor down the street can inhale two big macs in one sitting and have the cholesterol of a nineteen-year-old, while your cholesterol goes up when you just look at a stick of butter? Scientists were wondering the same thing when looking at the French.

The French population is a prime example of the benefits that resveratrol may have to offer. The term “French paradox” refers to the fact that although the French diet is very high in saturated fats, cardiovascular disease is not widespread in the country. How can a country full of people eat all of the fatty foods they want and not have a high incidence of heart disease? Research has shown that this may be due to the French people's love of wine and their tradition of drinking it with meals.

With moderate consumption of red wine (one to two glasses per day), the resveratrol contained in the wine can help prevent the growth and development of plaque in your arteries and may help the flow of blood through your cardiovascular system [2]. The wine flows in, the cholesterol and plaque flow out. Just think, the cure to high cholesterol and heart disease may have been in front of us the whole time, hidden within a beverage that has been consumed for thousands of years.

The resveratrol found in red wine has also been proven to reduce oxidative stress and regenerate alpha-tocopherol [3]. Oxidative stress can result in a number of diseases including heart failure, bipolar disorder, Parkinson's disease, fragile x syndrome and more [4]. Imagine a world where one simple supplement may benefit longevity and health by leaps and bounds. As research continues, we may find that resveratrol just might be that supplement.

Can a Glass a Day Keep the Doctor Away?

The fact that resveratrol offers a variety of health benefits is unquestionable. Will resveratrol keep aging, illness and disease at bay? Not completely, but it can help prevent the heart-related diseases that aging may cause and may offer an impressive array of benefits to your overall health and well-being.

Research on the properties and benefits of resveratrol is ongoing and as more studies are conducted, more benefits of resveratrol may emerge. It may turn out that red wine actually does flow from the fountain of youth.

Entropy contains 10mg of resveratrol -- the equivalent of ten glasses of red wine, without any of the alcohol. Buy Entropy now.
